We stayed here in October and would have no hesitation in recommending. The villa is spacious, very clean and well furnished, a home from home, complete with all mod cons you could possibly want. The outside space is fabulous, the pool is extra-large, there are great patio areas, a screened dining area and the villa has the most amazing views.
The location is perfect. We liked that it was very private but only a four or five minute drive from all the restaurants, bars and shops at Albox when we need to get in supplies or fancied a meal out. Having said that we enjoyed the sunsets at the villa on a number of occasions and just dined al fresco. We loved this place, and could not fault it. Hoping to return as soon as we can.
